"First, it’s important I explain that I’m a Tourism ambassador for the Nigerian campaign and a lot of people ask how it came about. It happened when I released a song with Tunji Oyelana titled ‘I Love My Country’ which is a patriotic song that somehow got to officials of the ministry and Minister of Tourism at that time, Edem Duke and they liked it" said Cuppy.

"So with that song and my potential role as a tourism ambassador, the inauguration ball committee thought it would be great to have someone representing a new Nigeria and the female gender. Personally I feel that a female DJ is unique and it was such an honour to be part of the presidential inauguration dinner and I look forward to working with the new tourism officials as well" she further said.
